Adelaide has reported two suspected anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries following the Crows’ 45-point Grand Final victory on Sunday.

Co-captain Erin Phillips was stretchered off with a knee injury in the third quarter, while first-year Crow Chloe Scheerinjured hers in the second.

“We suspect both girls have suffered ACL tears, but we won’t know for sure until they get scans during the week,” General Manager of Football Administration Phil Harper said.

“It’s a bittersweet feeling really, we’re ecstatic that we won but devastated for both Erin and Chloe.
